struck and killed a pedestrian. the chp responded to a call. they did a traffic break and quickly shut down 680 southbound. for an hour and a half, up until 5:30 this morning, traffic was at a complete standstill at the stoneridge exit. drivers heading from the east bay to the south bay were stuck in their tracks and then at 5:30, the chp opened up the far left shoulder to let one lane through. the question for chp investigators this morning, why this pedestrian was in the freeway in the first place? >> it was not a hit and run. the person stayed. >> what did they tell you? >> we can't tell you exactly what happened. >> reporter: now, the chp is not sure if the victim, if the pedestrian was struck by one or multiple cars by 680. one driver did stop.
